What is so neat is I can go to my local library which has a public wireless network, and just use it to either download and read Bookshare titles, or search for internet radio stations.
During my last semester of undergraduate study, I was required to student-teach Spanish at my local high school. The Stream allowed me to test my students using an external speaker. I played audio clips of Spanish conversations, and students were to answer questions on their computers and save them to text files. Although I had a computer that allowed me to read text files, nothing is as small and compact as the Stream. The Stream has been, and will continue to be, an integral part of my life.
I am thankful that the wireless internet process has been simplified and now such book formats as National Library Service digital books and Audible are recognized by this outstanding machine. With every new model of this impressive note taker the features I have come to rely on are only improved upon and the new features allow for even more accessibility to the ever changing technology of this day and age.
I sing with a barbershop chorus and place all my music/songs on the Victor Reader Stream; it is very easy to move forward or backward when learning the music. Recordings are quiet, free of annoying 'scratchiness'. I am a radio guy from a way back, what a device!
I'm loving my new Sendero GPS product running on the Apex. Whether in virtual or GPS mode, the software makes it a pleasure to use. I love the information that is available at my fingertips (literally) whenever I am out walking or traveling. The occasional announcements of passing POIs and the change of street announcements makes it easy for me to walk around. The QT version of the Apex allows me one keystroke commands for the common functions whenever I need that information on the fly like address or distance to the nearest cross street.
